How do you make a plain, simple mouseover popup panel like the one on this CNET page? (Triggers are the software titles) http://download.cnet.com/mac/3151-20_4-0.html?tag=vtredir
Not sure of your planned application, but Google "Tooltips" and you'll fine some attractive implementations like.
Okay, never mind. I appreciate your help. I have re-discovered Walter Zorn's tooltips package and it has everything I need. http://gualtierozorni.altervista.org/tooltip/tooltip_e.htm
